A fragment of the scabbard chape from Staraya Ryazan

Бесплатный доступ

The paper explores a rejected fragment of a cast bronze scabbard chape found in Staraya Ryazan in 2003. The find is linked to an estate of the 12th -13th centuries whose inhabitants were engaged in non-ferrous metal working. A close analogy to the fragment has been discovered in a Livonian cemetery (Latvia). The chape ornamentation is a barbarian imitation of a Byzantine specimen that featured figures of angels. The find is a reject made by a local craftsman using an imported item imprint in the molding clay.
